This is an open discussion thread for the news More safety measures at this year's OCBC Cycle Singapore

Medical personnel, traffic marshals and safety cars are not going to be the only measures in place in this year’s OCBC Cycle Singapore to ensure the safety of the participants.  20 skilled and experienced riders will be deployed at the Singapore’s biggest mass cycling event as safe-cycling ambassadors to identify errant cyclists and warn them against cycling in a manner that might endanger the lives of others.

No mention of the bicycle bell? Is it another lip service?

These wankers deliberately started this off and hyped it as an amateur bike race with various criteriums and challenges and a mass start of 12,000 spandex clad wannabe Lances, regardless of whether they had any clue how to handle a bike or not. After some negative publicity they are now becoming super safe by buying whistles and implying that past injuries and fatalities were the result of 'errant' cyclists endangering the lives of others. rather than poor planning or just the inherent dangers of racing bikes or a combination of both. 

Seems like they are going to try and copy NTU bike rally this year
